Apparently, cheating Warzone players’ days are numbered, as Activision announced multiple ongoing banwaves for the game, with an official anti-cheat arriving for PC later this year.
It’s the sickness that plagues every online multiplayer video game: cheating. Whenever a game comes online and if there are a number of people trying to enjoy it, there will always be cheaters.
The same can be said on multiple levels for free-to-play online titles, and for the past few months Call of Duty’s free-to-play battle royale Warzone has been home to many cheating players who have made the game a much less enjoyable experience.
Now, it seems like Activision has finally had enough, and they have announced via Twitter that there is an ongoing banwave on players cheating in Warzone. Check out the tweet below.
The post was accompanied by a supposedly real reaction from a Tiktok user who got all of their accounts banned by Activision.
In the video, they mention that they’re glad that Activision has finally done something to stop the rampant cheating in Warzone, and the video, in general, seems to serve as both a warning and proof that Activision really did something to try and curb these exploitative players.
It was only a few weeks ago when a Warzone streamer by the handle of CPTBALDY was caught with cheats of his own, and the action against him was swift as he was immediately banned by Activision.
However, this just proves how rampant cheating is in Warzone right now, as even some streamers can use them without being detected by the game’s current system.
Not all hope is lost for Warzone players, though, as Activision ended their post with news that an actual Anti-Cheat for PC will be arriving later this year.
Its effectiveness is something the players will have to see for themselves, though, and Warzone gamers on PC can look forward to that in the coming weeks or months.
